Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To provide a review of the nursing committees in both the Children's Cancer Group and the Pediatric Oncology Group and discuss intergroup nursing research collaboration in preparation for the merger of these cooperative clinical trials groups.

DATA SOURCES:

Review articles, reports, and newsletters from cooperative clinical trials groups.

CONCLUSIONS:

Nurses have established a vital presence in the pediatric cancer cooperative groups over the past 20 years through education, clinical practice, and collaborative research.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE:

With the unification of the pediatric cooperative groups into the single Children's Oncology Group, the time is uniquely right to build a program of nursing research allied with pediatric oncology cooperative group clinical trials.
